Back by popular demand, our weekly themed photo contest!

This week's theme is self portrait. All too often we are on the backside of the camera clicking the shutter. This week I want to see your personality in your photos. Think outside the normal realm of portraits as this contest has a special twist, NO FACES! Photograph your favorite feature (G-rate folks ) doing your favorite activity. For example, if you love photography, and I hope you do, a picture of you behind the camera is a great idea. PM me if you need any help or ideas. This is a great way to get to know everybody!

Rules: I'm going to limit everybody to two submissions. If anyone wants that changed, let me know. The longest side can't exceed 800 pixels in size. To submit your photos, please PM me your selections.

Deadline is November 24th at 5pm CST
Voting begins November 24th, 2008

If anyone wants to make any suggestions or have any ideas for themes, let me know. This contest is about you ladies, so I want it to reflect you.

This is where the photograher's creativity comes into play. If you google "self portrait photography" (without the quotes) you'll see lots of examples of portraits that don't contain the persons face.

A perfect example, Cris, is your photo in your blog of you in a pink sweater with just your belly and the cake with "Nicholas" on the flag.

Another example: Kimberly is painting her house and so she could take a picture of her with back turned to the camera, painting a wall.

Another spin is to obscure your face with something like your camera or a book.

I would prefer that it's one that you specifically take for the contest, but I realize that people have lives and that you may have one you really love that you've already taken, so I'm not going to require that it be something new.
